Another“Venice”

7/2/2012

The Netherlands have their own Venice too; it’s called Giethoorn and lies between the towns of Heerenveen and Zwolle. There’s a large system of small lakes and canals, some of them natural and some of them man-made. In times gone by peat was taken from the bogs, which created small lakes. The easiest way to transport the fuel through the marshes was by boat and hand-dug canals were added to the existing waterways.

Today Giethoorn is like any other Dutch town, apart from the streets being canals and there isn’t a car by every house in the neighbourhood, instead the “garages” contain one or more boats. They take these boats (or a cycle by the canal paths) to the car parks where they have their cars.

You can choose to cruise the waterways in large tourist vessels or choose to be your own captain on your own boat. Whatever you choose it will be equally remarkable an experience as it is enjoyable.
